500 Girls off the Street & Into School in Liberia.

by More Than Me
Jul 14, 2011


When More than Me joined Global Giving just over one year ago we had a dream of 100 girls in Monrovia, Liberia in school. We didn't have a timeline, and we didn't know if it would be possible. In four weeks three US-based volunteers, including myself, will be traveling to Liberia and assisting in the enrollment of 70 more girls in school, which will bring our total amount of girls enrolled in school to 100.


We wouldn't be there without you.

More than Me is still primarily funded by individual donations. People who have reached out to the organization over the last year and stated their commitment to educational access through small and large donations. We have been amazed at the support from donors and our volunteers who reach out to their networks

More than Me never intended to change the world. We just wanted to change the world for 100 girls.

Now that we have reached our first goal, what is next? Our volunteer team is already discussing next steps; maintaining future schooling for our current students, expanding our program to include other educational initiatives including sexual education, nutrition, and disease transmission, and expanding into a Safe House for girls who are streetworkers or orphaned.


You can follow our trip to Liberia starting in August on our blog: http://morethanme.org/blog/

We would love to hear from you too. What do you think is important as we expand the services our program offers?

You can always continue to help our program by signing up for recurring donations or simply sharing our message.

    Stephanie Don't worry Roger! We already do! We don't enroll a new girl in school until we have 3 years of education in her "bank". We add a new year of school at the end of each year to ensure that we always have all our current students covered! We are planning on taking the girls through as much school as they are...
